Don't Watch: Ira Sachs' Married Life Trailer
This movie was terrible. It's not often I start out ever saying that, but this time it's true. I saw Married Life at the Toronto Film Festival and was bored out of my mind. It's a relationship drama set in the 1940's starring Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson, Pierce Brosnan, and Rachel McAdams; Cooper and Clarkson are married, but not happily, then McAdams steps into his life and complicates things even further when both Cooper and Brosnan start dating her. This film really doesn't build into anything, it doesn't amount to anything, it doesn't even have a message. And with that, I won't even suggest you watch the trailer, but knowing the rebellious folk who frequent this site, you are probably going to anyway!
Don't be fooled, Married Life is not funny, it is not entertaining, it is not smart nor sly, it is just bone dry boring. Rachel McAdams and Pierce Brosnan are the only redeeming qualities, but even the bleach blonde curls and sweet innocence of McAdams couldn't fix this mess. I won't try to stop you anymore, have at it.
Watch the trailer for Married Life:
Married Life is directed by indie filmmaker Ira Sachs, of The Delta and Forty Shades of Blue. The script was written by both Ira Sachs and Oren Moverman (I'm Not There) and is based on a novel by John Bingham titled Five Roundabouts to Heaven. Married Life arrives in limited theaters on March 7th.

this looks terrible. sad to see brosnon and mcadams in it, hopefully they will pick better next time. im bias though, i usually hate movies about adultry. with such a high divorce rate i want to keep some hope for a succesful marriage alive.

Looks awful. I was hoping this would be McAdams comeback after a silent couple of years. Oh well, just proves what a crappy company Sony Classic is.
